Turkish Star Wars

Turkish Star Wars is the commonly used way of referring to the 1982 Turkish film Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam (The Man Who Saves the World). I didn't make it through the entire film. The film is just as bad as you may have heard it is. The subtitles are bizarre:
And with all their power they initiated relentless struggle and effort to find immortality and sustain continuous life. In this era earth nations, civilizations, races and religions ceased to be separate nations and did become one entity. Only one earthly life form and tribe consisted the humans of the earth in galaxy age. Earth was facing the danger of extinction as a result of a crazy nuclear armament. Earth had avoided such dangers a couple of times before; not single force had been able to destroy the earth. However, in some cases earth had been disintegrated into parts. Parts which fragmented off from the earth had become meteor rocks in space. On some planets life was still going on.

The mind boggles.
